Carpano Antica Formula (CAHR-pah-noh ahn-TEE-kah FOHR-moo-lah) is made from the Carpano distillerys "ancient formula" for red vermouth. Only recently available in North America, Carpano Antica Formula is the king of red vermouth: although traditionally served straight up as an aperitif, after-dinner drink, or even as an accompaniment to rich desserts, it will transform a common Manhattan or Red Martini into a cocktail fit for even the most refined palate.Antica Formula is a red vermouth made from an original recipe by Antonio Benedetto Carpano, the man credited with creating modern vermouth in Turin in 1786. Carpano originally developed vermouth by mixing herbs with a base wine and then sweetening it by adding spirit. His new drink proved so popular that soon his shop had to stay open 24 hours a day to satisfy demand.Carpano had been inspired by a German aromatised wine and was a fan of German poetry. As a result, he named his new product after the German word for wormwood, wermut, which was frequently used to flavour wine at the time.Antica Formula is richer and more complex than most red vermouths and will make an excellent Bronx, Manhattan or Negroni.

Wine Enthusiast 95pts - Antica Formula is a highly sought after red vermouth made from an original recipe by Antonio Benedetto Carpano, the man credited with creating modern vermouth in Turin in 1786. Carpano originally developed vermouth by mixing herbs with a base wine and then sweetening it by adding spirit. His new drink proved so popular that soon his shop had to stay open 24 hours a day to satisfy demand.


Winemaker's Notes:

Carpano "Antica Formula" is an exquisite Italian vermouth expertly handcrafted in small batches from the finest ingredients. Based on a recipe dating back to 1786, "Antica Formula" is refined and complex with delicate notes of vanilla, baking spice, dried apricot, raisin, date and candied orange. Enjoy as an aperitif with a twist of citrus, or use as a substitute for standard sweet vermouth and mix the best Negroni you've ever had.
